OUR PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

For over sixty years, Wolverine Pipe Line Company has been providing communities with the refined products they need to fuel their prosperity. Wolverine was incorporated in 1952 and the first pipeline was laid from Hammond, Indiana to Detroit, Michigan and Toledo, Ohio in 1953. Since then, Wolverine has expanded to meet the growing needs of our customers. Today, we operate 700 miles of pipeline in Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan transporting approximately fifteen million gallons of products a day. That is over 30% of all the gasoline and diesel fuel used in Michigan today.
